re: I'm getting inheritance in a few months and need a car now - Oenophile Brah
If you're locked in on paying off the car once you receive inheritance, regardless of interest rate, try to leverage the interest rate to reduce the sales price. You would only be able to do this with the dealer and only makes sense if you're certain you will receive the money soon. The intere...

re: Sue Zemanick leaving Gautreaus - Oenophile Brah
My opinion is their menu, and a few other highly regarded f&d board spots, lacks the flexibility and imagination I look for when deciding where to eat. I never said I didn't like the place, it's just not in my top 10. I'm not sure why that's controversial. It's an opinion. ...

re: Sue Zemanick leaving Gautreaus - Oenophile Brah
The original owners/chef left at Marti. I know many here loved gautreaus but it was never high on my list. Hope she gets a chance to spread her wings at her next spot. Indonesian sounds promising. ...

Sue Zemanick leaving Gautreaus - Oenophile Brah
I'm not sure if already posted but Ole Sue is leaving Gautreaus after 12 years. Just had a child and is picking up stakes. I'm curious if the failure of the two failed offshoots had anything to do with this. Both Marti and Ivy were short lived and couldn't have made financiers happy. That be...

re: Anyone been to the Caribbean Room? - Oenophile Brah
I went for the soft opening a while back. We had the full menu at no cost..... The food was well executed and the drinks were great. I do agree that they are catering to the slightly older crowd that seeks the nostalgia of classic dining. The menu, while executed well, hasn't prompted a retur...

re: How Much Should LSU Be Willing to Pay Tom Herman to Get Him Here? - Oenophile Brah
We need to look at the net cost of miles + cam vs Herman + potential OC. With Herman, he only needs an assistant which should come at a discount compared to Cam's salary. ...

re: Best Chicago Pizza - Oenophile Brah
Trying pequads before I leave. We're staying in the magnificent Mile and found a nice hidden gem. Arbella, is a really cool "gastro pub" with some excellent cocktails and small plates. They're new but they could teach some lessons to some in that dining space back in NOLA. Looking right at y...

re: 401K Questions - Oenophile Brah
A Roth sounds like a better option for you, especially with funds carrying a 1% exp ratio. Check Vanguard. As to your allocation, that seems like a high % going to foreign and bond funds. I'm assuming you're under 35, so I would think a higher portion toward [b]US Stock[/b]. My .02. ...

re: Flood Insurance Fraud Story-You aren't going to believe this one. - Oenophile Brah
Sad story if true. If the flood insurance is truly a line item on the mortgage document, it seems to me, Tom & his employer are liable for failing to bind the policy. This is a RESPA complaint that should leave the mortgage servicer responsible to Make Whole. The originator's false choice...

re: What should these college kids do with the money in their savings/stock account? - Oenophile Brah
Gotcha. That's great they have a family buffer, but self reliance has it's own reward. I like the idea of having 2 funds, 1 large cap & 1 mid/small cap. I know they're with Schwab, but Vanguard has excellent low-cost funds to consider. Once they reach 10k/fund, they should qualify for V...

re: What should these college kids do with the money in their savings/stock account? - Oenophile Brah
What am I missing... why do they have that kind [b]cash[/b] in a brokerage account? I agree with the other comment with each setting aside a portion for an emergency fund. After that, I would look at setting up Roth accounts once/if they are working. Assuming they have 5-8k leftover, I would...

re: Brennan's - Oenophile Brah
Nice review! Sounds like you had primarily small plates? Wish you had some photos of that sweetbread dish. I haven't been yet, but glad to hear a good review. I've heard mostly average reviews so far. Need to give it a shot soon. ...

re: MillerCoors buys Terrapin - Oenophile Brah
What the hell did I miss? They bought the brand and state they will allow current management to operate the business unit. Do you believe M/C will force changes on their product? I doubt they will and could possibly allow for greater experimentation. M/C could operate Terrapin as a R&D unit. ...
